Brady proved he could win a Super Bowl without Belichick, but football is a team sport and no one player wins a Super Bowl by himself. I don't think there is any doubt that Brady is the best QB of the last 25-30 years, but I have a hard time naming anyone as the greatest ever. When you take a close look at how different every era was and how many variables there are it's nearly impossible to compare players.
I grew up in Northern NJ. I grew up in the 1970s. I was always a big sports fan. I enjoy writing about old school sports and weightlifting.
